MSC7 should do, and should run OK under an emulator, since it's a pretty
well-behaved set of software. The CodeView debugger might be a different
matter, mind you.

Other ways would be to try to configure gcc as a cross-compiler - I
wouldn't bother - or download one of the range of DOS-compatible compilers
on Borland's community website.
